Michele Lamy`s story…

She has a name of her own, Michele Lamy, the wife and muse of Rick Owens. The first designer garments he made were made specially for her and here she tells the story of a dress that was lost… She is definitely his all in all inspiration and muse. Now she does the furniture line for the brand. She`s the only woman I´ve ever seen with golden teeth. She`s intriguing and interesting. We had a moment after lunch sharing about our lives. I truly wish we could have stayed longer since we were just beginning to share some of our life passions when we were called back on set to tell our stories. Listen to her story about the ghost Indian dress here at 38 min

Finding consolation in a coat…

Irene Silvagni, former editor of french Vogue and since 22 years working with Yohji Yamamoto, told a story about the consolation and protection of a coat and the waiting for those that don`t return. Deeply moving. There is always a theme to each collection that Yohji does and one day a few years ago he told Irene that this specific collection would be dedicated to the women waiting for their men to come back from the war. Waiting… waiting and waiting. And how they found consolation in wearing the coats from their husbands closets. Irene got one of the coats from this collection and has been wearing it many times during many years. She is sharing the memory of her own father who never returned. Oh, I feel it in my belly in my heart. I love Irene, she is one of the most beautiful women I know. Listen to her story 19.40 min. It is a very touching story, a love story between fashion and women waiting for their men, a man, a father…_DSC5528

Storytelling…J C de…

Ok! It`s all blurred! Anyway I really love the expressiveness of J C de Castelbajac as he is telling his story…his story about how he 1997 made a rainbow cape for the pope and thousands of priests…an amazing story. I`m still blog catching up, I now PROMISE to do one story a day until I´m done with this storytelling event. Just have to do one story  complete before the next…and that will be the J P Gaultier show, the backstage etc…catching up from fashion week Paris. Love catching up! This man has a passion and a very interesting life. You can also follow him on Instagram: @jcdecastelbajac it is fun.

The Vestoj Storytelling event…

OH MY…the videos from the storytelling is out! They were only REHEARSAL from the day before and I didn`t know my story by heart by then, even less how to improvise with it…and WHAT am I doing with my hands! ANYWAY enjoy all the storytellers! The day before, not all the sets were done and…I promise MY story was so much better the next day, when I could share it without the notes, after a whole night of practise, part of that in a bathtub where I fell asleep practising. I loved to be part of it.

JC de Castelbajac

Participating in life. Being your own unique life, meeting other unique lives and the moment you get to share together, is true participation. I had the extreme joy of meeting so many beautiful beings, all unique…and some of their unique stories at the fondation d`enterprise Galleries Lafayette. Here a little taste of JC de CASTELBAJAC. He is this very colourful fashion designer with his own shows since years and years, I don`t know how many…and this is his PASSION, to crayon draw on walls, so he walks around Paris and wherever he is, with his chalks, and leaves angels behind. They are all over…This was just before the event, where we both participated, just on the courtyard outside my room. I looked out and there he was in full action…and as we spoke he included me, our friends in common Anthony and Coralie and also Kenzo of course…


a courtyard and a wall


a man , his passion and his chalks


drawing angels


sharing a moment ”we have common friends” ”who?” ”Anthony and Coralie” ”great people..!” and oops they`re on the wall


as we speak


Anthony and Coralie


Anthony+ Coralie

_DSC5469Anthony? Coralie. I love this people. I first met Anthony backstage at the Dries van Noten show this march and loved the jewellery he had around his neck, a gold popcorn, it turned out him and his girlfriend Coralie make them, METAMORPHOSE they call them, from blue corn seeds that they metamorphose. So I immediately ordered one for Kenzos 75th birthday, since I had a vision of a golden pearl, it became a corn instead. And then of course I met Anthony again and the next day Anthony and Coralie at cafe Merci where we sat for hours talking about inner and outer life, spirit and matter. So now we are friends and I love them and love to hang out with them. They both work creatively with a fashion brand…and so it goes…unique meetings…and new creations


like this new but old meeting with Jean Charles


drawing angels and fairy wolves


and me Ingmari 5.4.14


I LOVE the drawing of me, angel with a peace dove on my head holding a heart in its beak


”right on Ingmari” ”Voila!”


the wall completed. What a perfect wall to draw on, it was just waiting for it`s master to arrive and create the next perfect expression of participation in life


then we spoke about our other friend in common…KENZO…and there he was on the heating system


it was in 1967 they met. I met Kenzo a year later


at the end of the day, resting by my angel in the sun, after a full intense day performing my story inside


the sky is blue,the air is warm, time for a walk to one of my favourite gardens…gratitude

Paris. Sarah Moon outside Khadi&Co for the 10 years celebration. Khadi have the most beautiful handcrafted shawls and some clothes, its like wearing love on the body. This kind of fabrics which are hand picked, hand spun and hand woven is the biggest luxury today in a world where so much is lost to super fast production. My friend started her company for her love of the fabrics and to support the weavers so their craft doesn't die out. Look at www.khadiandco to see some of the beauty that cannot really be seen but needs to be felt by the touch of the body. #love #life #light #khadi#ghandi#heartfull #handicraft#khadiandco#paris#lovethebeautyofitall
